ambigram: naguib.ngadnan
ambigram: fadilah.abdul.rahim

nagfa is the incomplete form of Naguib and Fadilah. Naguib and Fadilah are the incomplete forms of Naguib bin Ngadnan and Fadilah bte Abdul Rahim. Here are the pictures of two very special persons in our lives, persons who make us a little more complete, a little more whole; our real-life heroes :

Nag and Ayah Ngadnan

Fa and Bapak Abdul Rahim

To all Fathers, nagfa salute you. Happy Fathers' Day!

* 'Ayah' and 'Bapak' are but two (of many) ways of addressing one's father in the Malay culture.
* The head dress worn by Ayah Ngadnan and Bapak Abdul Rahim is called the 'songkok', the shirt-pants combo is known as the 'baju Melayu' and the piece wrapping them around the hip area is the 'kain songket'. This ensemble is usualy worn on special occasions (like a wedding, Hari Raya Puasa: Muslim festival celebrating the end of the fasting month of Ramadhan, etc.).
